When you sign an agreement it becomes legally binding, meaning it can create an array of future problems if you unknowingly agree to an unfair term or condition.
People seek ILA for several different types of agreements. Some of the most common agreements include:
Settlement agreements are commonly used to end a contract of employment. It’s essential that you seek ILA when being given a settlement agreement to ensure you’re not signing an agreement that negatively affects your future job prospects.
- Employment Contract Reviews
When offered a contract for a new job, it can be exciting and result in you wanting to sign right away. However, if your role is extremely specialist or the contract contains unusual terms, we advise that you seek ILA.
It’s a requirement when applying for a mortgage, that you have sought ILA to prove you understand the terms and conditions of the documents you’re signing.
By seeking ILA you’ll understand where you stand from a legal perspective and exactly what’s fair and minimise future surprises.
